Canada Day

"Under this flag may our youth find new inspiration for loyalty to Canada; for a patriotism based not on any mean or narrow nationalism, but on the deep and equal pride that all Canadians will feel for every part of this good land."
– Prime Minister Lester Pearson

Fireworks, parades, barbecues, concerts, carnivals, fairs, picnics, and in the case of the Canada Day GORUCK Challenge, a rucking team event that honors the sacrifice it’s taken to earn such freedoms. The independence themed party follows, of course.

Mike Rock

Army Special Forces

Iraq, Oman, Afghanistan


Mike goes by his first and middle name since you can't pronounce his last name, and he is too lazy to correct you. He enjoys long walks with random strangers, picking up heavy things repeatedly, cupcakes, and has a weird fetish with little men in the woods. He LOVES when you refer to anything other than actual US Army Special Forces as "Special Forces".
